Broadridge Alert: New Client Alert provides an overview of Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 201

On April 16, 2015, the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015 (MACRA) became law. This act changes certain Medicare provisions and extends funding for the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP). This new law enhances health-care quality and cost control initiatives. It also authorizes and funds the removal of Social Security numbers from all Medicare cards, offering greater protection to individuals whose Medicare cards are lost or stolen. Moreover, the act subsidizes Medicare premiums as well as adjusts income-related premiums for Medicare Parts B and D. These new income limits (thresholds) will take effect in January 2018, subjecting some Medicare beneficiaries to higher income-related premium adjustments.
But in the meantime, clients and their families may be interested in specific details, so we’ve created a Client Alert that provides an overview of the new legislation.
